Tigers driver and irons are fantastic.

I went through his round shot by shot...interesting to note that his longest three drives were 289, 273 and 272...everything else was in the 250-260 range. Was he hitting a lot of 3 woods, or is he maybe backing off the driver a bit to get the ball in the fairway.....his average driving distance was 255, but also hit 13 of 14 fairways.

Last hole, he drove it 306....I agree on his short distance average though....but his long irons were on fire....maybe his game plan?

I am watching shot tracker.

Well, he's finished anyway so it doesn't matter now. Tiger Woods -6, 255.5 driving distance, 92.86 % driving accuracy, 83.33% GIR! Those are ridiculous! He probably throttled back a little or hit more 3 woods because of that driving distance, but the fairways and GIR numbers are crazy!

And average proximity to hole 23 feet, which is also pretty good

That's very good, specially since (I'm pretty sure) that stat includes missed greens.

Well, I guess this answers it

Q: Do you plan to hit as many 3s off the tee with the conditions? TIGER WOODS: It depends on the wind condition. For most of the day the wind was in the right direction to hit three wood off the tee. I could have hit driver a couple more times but I had to take it over corners. I didn't feel comfortable with it. Ball in hand it's more important to get the ball in play. Even if I have a 3 or 4-iron in the fairway I'd much rather have that an a 7-iron in the rough. It's wet and guys aren't getting it to the green. So I just felt that was a better way of playing the golf course today.

Anyone going? This is going to be my first PGA event I attend - I do kind of regret missing out on the Barclays last year and that Liberty Golf Course...

I was at Liberty National last year for the Barclays and we'll be there again this year for Sunday's round. Last year we watched th practice range for a while (highly recommend this) and then headed to the course around 1:00 and walked it backwards.

It worked out pretty well because we got to see the whole course and everyone in the field and then we made it back to 1/18 in time to settle in and watch the contending groups come home. Following Tiger is a wash. But like I mentioned, if you're walkin the course backward you get ahead of the crowd and can wait in a good vanage point for anyone you want to see. I should've mentioned last year we went on Saturday and they went off both sides of the course due to bad weather.. so perhaps walkin backwards wouldn't have worked out as well with everyone going off th front.

With all of the 3 woods tiger hit off the tee today with success, I am amazed that it took him this long to realize that hitting the 3 wood is a good gameplan? Yes, there are courses and holes where you MUST hit driver but with his driver being all over the place like it is, he should've been hitting 3woods off of the tee all season with resorting to 4i & 5i's from the fairway on his second shot.... Regardless, great round for him today.

I do some divorces. Only once do I remember a client shedding a tear leaving the judge's office after finalization. Most often, they leave with a lighter step and a feeling that a load is off their shoulders.

Thursday's leader is rarely on the leaderboard come Sunday, so it's jumping to conclusions to say that Tiger is back. But maybe he is.

It's on ESPN3 now.

I don't understand who is covering what on the internets. I assume if it's on the Golf Channel, ESPN doesn't carry it, but ESPN3 does. I guess the ESPN coverage is different from that of the Golf Channel.

I guess just check ESPN3 regardless.

Did Tiger change his swing slightly? I just watched the highlights of his round and something looks differant, clubface seems to be more shut/square, maybe foley told his to use a stronger grip?

I got out of class around 1 p.m. today and boy was I surprised when I saw the leaderboard. It's pretty exciting to see Tiger's name at the top again :) at least for Tiger fans it is.

    • Played again today, a course I played a couple of times before and broke 90 easily. Shot 86 with 2x ob and one water hazard. The work that I put in the last year really shows and I feel that on the right course on the right day I could break 80 even this year. It probably won’t happen but that’s the goal for next season.    I see that I must work on 100 meters and in. So on one of the hardest holes which is a 440 yard par 4 I drove the ball over 310 and then had a pitching wedge in. It was a bit of an awkward stance but I was just left of the green. Almost chipped in but then messed up the comeback putt and instead of an easy par I made a bogey.    Maybe I’m being too hard on myself looking at the tour averages but I feel like that’s one area of the game I need to clean up - no 3 putts and more up and downs. And I really need to put more work / decide on how I want to pitch and then really let that sink in and finally get the distances for all 4 wedges for 1/2, 3/4 and full swings printed out and stick them on the clubs. 
    • Birdied #4 and #12 at Sand Valley last week, as well as #9 at The Links Course at Lawsonia. The 4th hole is the only new addition to my away composite.
    • I understand the need to protect what people perceive to be their freedoms, but I don't think that there is a problem in enforcing things like the wearing of seatbelts or driving whilst drunk etc. I think it SHOULD be mandated, but am realistic enough to know that any government who tried to to this would become very unpopular very quickly. At the very least I think there should be a sort of "vaccination passport" where it became pretty obvious that being unvaccinated stopped you from doing thing you like to do - like going to restaurants, sporting events or even your job, which would be an incentive for them to get vaccinated. I kind of think that the greatest freedom you can have is being pretty sure that if you do get the virus it won't kill you. And there's a simple way to achieve that freedom.
    • I hadn't heard that, but given the stupidity of people out there refusing to take it (even for FREE, no less), I'm not surprised. It'll likely be upheld too because, while the case law is old, the case mostly on point has upheld such measures.
    • There's been a lot of stories in the news lately that, because enough people have not been vaccinated (thus starving the virus), we may be headed towards mandates.  Not desirable but the 30% to 40% not vaccinated are keeping Covid-19 rolling right along and harming those who have done their part to help beat down this pandemic.
